    I was there for that. They closed the summit lift for about a 1/2 hour midday so ski patrol could put more snow where you get off the lift on top. They went into the woods & filled up toboggans with snow & then dumped it on the trail so you could ski off. This was on a Fri. I have no idea how they stayed open until Sun. which they did. The middle section under the lift actually had some nice spring bumps that day.

    2012 snow depths = Not nearly as bad. Sure maybe it melted out quick but there were points during the season that you could ski in the woods:

    Careful what you wish for. If we hit 80 in March, the current man made snow pack would last maybe two days in many places.

    I usually get 8-10 powder days a season. I'm at 1. and sugarbush has probably had more snow than anywhere else in the east. have to see how march plays out but to date, this has been as bad as I recall. Not that I havent enjoyed skiing

    I've had fun everyday out this year. Yes, I wish some more challenging terrain was open, but fun none the less.

    The main thing this season has made me realize is that i need to increase my quiver to include a front side sudo race ski (thinking Kastle MX78 or RX12).

    It ended fast for sure. They had to make snow at Sugarloaf and Sunday River late Mach that season to absorb British Invasion business that Killington ended up turning away. However, as you say, there was at least a decent amount of snow that season until the nuclear melt down in March. Killington received 152" on the season that year. By far their worst total since 1988.

    This year 44" so far. They need NINE feet of snow the rest of the year just to equal 2011-2012. It's happened before on a handful of occasions. Hopefully it does again this year.
